Ingredients

  • 1 25 oz jar spaghetti sauce
  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 cups Italian seasoned Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese or more if you like
  • 1 package of spaghetti noodles for serving

Instructions

  • Spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray (or use a slow cooker liner).
  • Pour in jar of spaghetti sauce.
  • Get out two shallow bowls.
  • In one bowl, whisk together egg and milk (add in any salt & pepper to taste).
  • In a second bowl, mix together panko bread crumbs with garlic powder, oregano and basil.
  • In a large skillet, begin heating up the vegetable oil (over medium-high heat).
  • You want to get your skillet hot before adding chicken to it.
  • Dip each chicken breast into the milk mixture.
  • Then roll it around in the seasoned bread crumbs.
  • Do each breast one at a time.
  • Then add chicken to hot skillet.
  • Continue with the rest of the chicken. You aren't cooking them.
  • All you want is to create a nice golden brown crust on both sides of the chicken breasts. If necessary, add a bit more oil to the pan.
  • After browning both sides, add chicken to the crock pot on top of the sauce.
  • Cover and cook on low for about 6-8 hours.
  • About 10-15 minutes before serving, sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Cover again and allow cheese to melt.

Notes

About 30 minutes before this is ready, you'll want to start
cooking your spaghetti noodles, if using. Serve over cooked spaghetti with a crisp, green salad and some garlic bread.
